Me: Howdy Prodigal, who is your friend?
Prodigal: This is Mr. Soldier and he is a great friend to me.
Me: How is he a great friend?
Prodigal: Well when ever I need to go someplace that might be dangerous for me, he comes along for my protection.
Me: That is a blessing and I think we all need friends like that.
In Discerning the Right Decision by Gaspar Anastasi he talks about our friendships.
Divinely appointed relationships are also a place of protection. Personally, I’m going to have anointed men and women of God whom I trust around me, people who can hear God and bear witness with my spirit before I make a major move. A lot of people are afraid of accountability, but God has made us people of relationship for a reason. I need the gift that’s in you and you need the gift that is in me. Maybe at the moment, my emotions are too wrapped up in the problem for me to hear from God clearly. I need you to help me cut through Satan’s snares and entanglements and make a right decision.
I look back over these past five years and I see my divinely appointed relationships. How amazing it was that I met each one of you. How amazing it was that we took time to know each other. I have laughed with you. You have seen me with sorrow. You have seen me in the valley. You have seen me on the mountain top with God’s glory. You encouraged me, you supported me and you helped me grow. You were my place of protection.
How grateful I am to God for my divinely appointed relationships! The journey would not have been as wonderful without you. I want you to know the love I have for you. You are valued in my heart.
